I must attempt to make this post quite snappy because we are t-minus 36 hours until the movers arrive! Oh brother...lots to do! To recap Week 34 - Nick started his new gig in Arkansas and I worked my last week in Cali. I was nervous about him being so far away but, me & Dorsey Dog survived. Nick seems to really like his new role / team / office which of course makes me happy. My final week in the office flew by and when Thursday (my last official day) arrived, I still had 100 things I wanted to do for St. A's. I am praying that God will bring them someone absolutely wonderful and who will love it as much as I did if not more!
Yesterday the church where I work had a farewell reception for us after both worship services. Cake & coffee in the Fellowship Hall and a chance for last hugs / good-byes. The members of St. A's have become my family over the past 18+ months and I feel like I am robbing them of this baby. The thought that I am leaving behind 100 eager "aunts & grandmas" to love & care for Baby Sass is hard... very hard. I will miss them all but we will be back in July so that helped keep me strong. Here are a few pics from the day.
Marian & Amy organized the reception - both are truly wonderful!
After the reception, we headed home and got ready for the Super Bowl. Despite the fact that we probably should have been doing a 1,000 other move related things, we decided what the heck and had our small group friends over. I am SO glad we did too! Great food & even better company. ; )
Here we are Week 34!
Dear Little One, you weigh over 5 pounds and are approximately 19 1/2 inches. Supposedly from this point on you will gain 1/2 a pound a week until the end. Who knows though - you could weigh / gain more or less - we are just praying that you are healthy. We go see Dr. J one last time this week and next week we will meet the new doctor who will deliver you. Hopefully we'll like her as much as Dr. J but that's a tough act to follow.
Our final week in CA will filled with lots of mixed emotions but I know this part of such a BIG and wonderful plan for our family.
